Sodero, S. Under the Weather: Mobility in the Climate Crisis examines and challenges the entanglement of mobility, fossil fuels, severe weather and climate change. Through the compelling tales of two hurricanes, I contend that ecological flows, such as carbon emissions, floodwaters and wind, need to be considered in lockstep with flows of people, goods and services. I make five recommendations for reorienting mobility systems to climate change and carbon constraint.
This special issue of the Canadian Journal of Sociology, (eds. Stephanie Sodero and Nicholas Scott)on 'contentious mobilities’ investigates mobilities in the context of unequal power relations. Mobilities are contentious when they confront the systematic exclusion of others, advance unconventional mobile practices and destabilize existing power relations. We address an empirical gap, featuring Canada as a prolific and influential site for leading-edge research.
